Hey I have a 320gb Maxtor External 2.5" drive that has 3 partitions on it 2x 25gb Fat32 partitions and then 1x 248gb NTFS partition. The NTFS partition says that it is unreadable on my vista laptop but when I plug it into my mac it reads it perfectly and I can access the data. What could be causing the problem? Oh and before any one suggests scandisk I could not run it.

On the PC if you go into Disk Management do all 3 partitions show up in there and with the correct format? Was the NTFS (if you're sure thats what it is) created on the MAC to begin with?
